My goal is to make the process of buying, selling, and owning a home efficient, enjoyable and rewarding for you. I live and work by the Golden Rule. I am a teacher at heart and will help you understand this process so that you can make the best decisions for your particular situation. See what some of my clients have said about my real estate services...
My wife (a former realtor) and I have bought, sold, and managed 6 different properties through Barbara. Barbara Murphy is a rare breed of Broker/Realtor that is competent and dedicated to the profession, engaging personally, yet also is fastidious to the smallest detail concerning her clients' needs, desires, and personal preferences. She has the rare ability to focuses on the social side along with the paperwork that represent her and her clients in the deal. She has the heart of a teacher, an easy patience, and unwavering dedication. She's equally skilled with first timers as well as veterans.

My husband and I worked with Barbara before we even started looking for our new house as she managed the property we were renting in Pace, FL. She and her husband were great and always available to help if we needed something looked at or fixed in the rental property. We lived in their rental for a little over a year and then were ready to start the search for our own home! Barbara was amazing through the entire process. As first time home buyers, we had lots of questions and Barbara was instrumental in making our home buying process go smoothly (I stress easy so this was super important to me!!!). She is very educated in the various processes you have to go through and is there to walk you through each one step by step. I'd recommend her to any of my friends or family that were looking for rental properties or looking to buy a home of their own!

We have had the pleasure of working with Barbara on 3 occasions, 2 purchases and 1 sell. She is a very knowledgeable and detail orientated individual. Consistently kept in touch with us on all 3 transactions at all times and even when she was out of town on personal leave. More than willing to drop whatever she was doing to meet with us whenever needed. Barbara had a contract on the house we were selling within 14 days of it going on the market. I highly recommend Barbara to be your go-to agent.

Barbara Murphy is not only an excellent realtor but a wonderful friend! She's great at being available when you need her and always helpful for whatever questions you may have. We quickly discovered how time consuming and exhausting buying a house can be, so having a positive and hard-working realtor is a must and that is exactly what you get with Mrs. Barbara.

From a note received from the Newbold family, formerly of Pace, FL:
Thank you for everything you did not only in the sale of our house, but also the management of it while it was rented. We felt very confident it was being taken care of and greatly appreciate all of your hard work. It was a pleasure to work with you and please feel free to use us as a reference and/or as positive feedback for any business purpose, minus our full names, (just for privacy!) :)
(Note added by Barbara Murphy: I managed the Newbold's home for close to 3 years after their transfer. We kept it 100% occupied at an excellent rental rate and sold it for them at the end of that time - listed upon tenant notification of move-out, active showings after tenant move-out - received multiple offers - negotiated contract within 3 weeks and closed 60 days later.)
Mrs. Murphy is very knowledgeable in the field. She is a very hard working detailed agent. You will never have to guess about what is going on with your process. Barbara will keep you informed on everything! I highly recommend Mrs. Barbara Murphy!!!!!

Thank you, Barbara, for taking such good care of my husband and I as we looked for a new house. You were tireless in your efforts to show us a wide spectrum of available properties, knowledgeable about neighborhoods, and a wealth of information about both resources and potential pitfalls. We are particularly grateful at your patience dealing with us as overseas customers, and for your unfailing cheerfulness as we went through the house-buying process. You are the very best realtor we have ever dealt with. You listened to us, and as promised - you found the right house for us. :-)

My name is Perry Bailey, I live in Alabama and I have just had the pleasure of doing business with Mrs. Barbara Murphy.
To anyone thinking about selling or buying property, I can highly recommend Mrs. Murphy.
I signed with Mrs. Murphy around the middle of August to sell my property in Avalon Beach - Milton - Florida. She guided me and made recommendations on how to go about selling the property quickly and at a price I could go with.
She never failed to return my phone calls within the hour or answer my emails within 2 hours. She went way out of the way to accommodate me in the selling of the property, She recommended a surveyor, and she did all the leg work since I lived in another State and did not have the time to come to Florida.
I found Mrs. Murphy to be very dependable and her work very professional, and we sold the property in November of that year.
|Why Choose a REALTOR® With a GRI designation?
Buying property is a complex and stressful task. In fact, it's often the biggest single investment you will make in your lifetime. At the same time, real estate transactions have become increasingly complicated.
New technology, laws, procedures and the increasing sophistication of buyers and sellers require real estate practitioners to perform at an ever-increasing level of professionalism.
So it's more important than ever that you work with an agent who has a keen understanding of the real estate business. The GRI program has helped the best and the brightest in the industry achieve that level of understanding.
- Nationally recognized as top performers in the real estate industry
- Professionally trained
- Dedicated to bringing you quality service
A GRI can make a difference
When you see the letters "GRI" after an agent's name, you can count on receiving the knowledge and guidance you need to make your transaction go smoothly. In short, you can count on getting the best service available from a real estate professional.
You have a choice of whom you hire to work for you as your Realtor. The Seller traditionally pays the professional service fee. Before you hire an agent to work for you to list and sell your home (if you are a seller), or assist you in the purchase of a new home (if you are a buyer) or manage your rental property for you (if you are an investor) -- interview several candidates for this job. For most people, a real estate transaction is one of the largest financial transactions they make. It PAYS to work a PROFESSIONAL. Real Estate Agents are definitely NOT all alike. :)
